About Laghman Province:

Laghman is one of several provinces in the remote mountainous regions of eastern Afghanistan. It is one of the few provinces with abundant natural wildlife and lush valleys that remain green all year. Located along the old Silk Road in the Himalayan foothills, Laghman province enjoyed centuries of cultural exchange with both the East and the West. 

It is also renowned for having some of the finest gem mines in the world, including emeralds, aquamarine, and tourmaline. With the demise of the old trade routes, Laghman province today is mostly rural and less frequently traveled. Although Laghman is experiencing the turmoils of current day events, it continues to retain its distinctive jewelry traditions.
